98 Honda Civic Gets A Refresh - Update page 20 - LED's, Glowing XS Logo,2 SMD VM-1's - 4/11/13

Recommended Posts

I know i have worked on this thing off and on for the last few years, never really making too much progress on some of my bigger idea's. Mainly because this car had 4 dead or dying Yellow Tops and a bad alternator. Well i replaced the alternator a while back but never did anything with the batteries. Until now. Just the other day i installed a new D5100 under the hood so i can move the car and actually start it for a change. After going to the Autorama this weekend, it inspired me to get off my ass and work on it some more.

So here is what i have done for a few hours yesterday and most of today.

Me and my son cleaned, removed and re-ran a bunch of wires. etc


Added 6 new XS Power D2400 Batteries. Recently added: XS Power D5100 (under hood) and a Mechman 220+a alt @ 15.3v
Added 1 Rockford Fosgate T400.2 (for the mids)
Added 1 Rockford Fosgate Punch 200.2 (for the tweets)
Sub amps, undecided. Probably 4 T2500.1 bdcp
Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3 over Optical to Alpine IVA W200 and Bluetooth to Ipad
New SMD D'Amore RCA's
Subs, RE MT 18's are out while they still work...SMD 18's planned.

FYI: the loudest i have gotten it so far is 154.5 with 2 RF T4000.1bd's. Lots of air leaking backwards. When i stop that i bet i gain at least 2 db. Plus the new SMD's will probably spank the MT's on music.

I had 4 T4000.1bd's back there but it was just too much for the dead batteries i had. I am NOT ruling out putting them back in there! I think i like the idea of 4 T2500.1bd's better. They will have room to breath and deal with my electrical much better.

we will just have to wait and see what i do next.

please wish me MOTIVATION!! An old man needs it!

i might do the body work on it and plasti-dip it. I was thinking white with the silver gloss and black wheels. Make this car a color nobody ever thought it would be. I LOVED my IS250 when it was that color and for the cheap i can make this thing look pretty fresh :D
